Monday ... still on track and weigh in day

Monday, February 27, 2012

Today I had my WI and lost .4kg. This is not a large loss, but it still is a loss... I have lost every week since my realisation how big I really was. emoticon

Today was another day down at work, the day the final expressions of interest to be submitted. Hopefully by Wednesday all the girls will know where they stand. It has been awful for them, and those going have tried to keep them positive. I work with an amazing group - all the one's who are trying for their jobs are helping each other and wishing each other well. Just amazing.

For me, I am well and truly ready to retire ... however, I don't show enthusiasm at work because of the others trying for their jobs. However, I can tell you all how happy I am! emoticon

Tonight I sat down and brushed Max .... he looks gorgeous. It is so lovely sitting brushing him... he is so gorgeous.

I have been sticking to the filling and healthy with WW and seeing as I have lost since being following this, I will continue on this way for the time being. emoticon

I read a blog today from a lady who had lost 100 pounds .... she had 6 points ... one was eating more fruit and vegies ... so I have had some fruit tonight and will have some more and the other was drinking the water .... I have had about 6 today ... so will have more before bed ... and then probably will be up during the night ... but that is what I am going to do.

I am still coming home and tired and not doing anything much ... just the basics ... but I am sure this will pass!

I went to visit my mum this afternoon. She was fairly lucid for her ... looking for the boy ... I showed her a photo of my dad as a young soldier ... and she recognised him as who she was looking for .... that's what she said, and she smiled. She had a few smiles today ... so that makes me happy and she told me she loved me.... so that was nice.

Ramblng a bit tonight ... LOL

    Good for you going down .4. You are staying on track and doing it!

    I am happy for you that your mom was able to focus and tell you that she loved you and recognized your day.

    Have a great day Sandy. You deserve it!

    emoticon on the weight loss. It took me 6 months to lose 12kg, which is about 3 times as slowly as once before on WW. But it has been pretty painless and I think I will keep it off because it has been slower. So keep on keeping on! It is a pity that circumstances at work make you have to suppress your anticipation of retirement. You are doing very, very well to keep to your healthier lifestyle amidst the daily, unavoidable uncertainty and gloom.

    Wow WTG Sandy, yes a loss is a loss, you don't wont to lose big numbers and certainly not fast. It isn't a diet it's a way of life. I admire you for all the water you have been drinking. I am not a water drinking person so I drink soda water still not the amount I am supposed to.

    Don't you feel for those people trying for their job at the same time you are so joyous about retiring.

    I'm glad you had a nice visit with your Mum, you are very strong Sandy.

    Feel free to get things off your chest any time we are all your friends here to listen
